Lawrenceburg beats Batesville 7-6 to win 3A-29 Sectional

Aurora-  The top two teams in the EIAC this year played one more time Monday for the Class 3A Sectional 29 championship.  And for a third time this season, Lawrenceburg defeated Batesville, this time by a final of 7-6.

This game was part of our spring webcast schedule and is available to watch in our archives by clicking here.

Batesville got the early jump on the No. 4 Tigers scoring twice in the second without benefit of a hit.  With one out, Alex Roell was hit by a pitch.  He broke for second on a pitch to Quinn Werner to get credit for a steal, but the ball also got past the catcher.  The passed ball allowed Roell to reach third and, still on the same play, Roell scored on an error.

Werner nearly scored the same way right after Roell.  Werner was hit by a pitch and stole second.  On a separate pitch, he took third on a passed ball and, on the same play, scored on an error.  It was 2-0 Batesville after two innings on a pair of unearned runs.

Lawrenceburg picked up an unearned run of its own in the third. AJ Mueller reached on an infield error. Austin Weimer and Jordan Houze both boarded on base hits to fill the bags.  With two outs, Clay Woeste drew a walk to force in Mueller.  That cut the Batesville lead to 2-1.

The Tiger offense came alive in a big way during the fifth as the Orange and Black sent nine batters to the plate and scored four runs on four hits.  Saben Schnebelt led off with a solo home run to left.  Ben Murphy singled, Houze sacrificed and Woeste was intentionally walked.  Eli Helton delivered a base hit to left to score Murphy.  Austin Bowling singled to left center to plate Woeste.  After Trent Hughes was hit by a pitch to load the bases, Mueller’s sac fly to shallow center was enough to score Helton and make it a 5-2 Tiger lead.

The Dogs got a run back in the home fifth.  Zach Blomer walked, took second on a wild pitch and, on the same play, went to third on an error.  Zach Britton scored Blomer on a sacrifice fly to center.  It was now Tigers 5, Bulldogs 3 through five frames.

Lawrenceburg missed a big chance to play add on in the sixth as Murphy, Houze and Woeste all reached on consecutive singles with one out.  But a fly out to short and and a ground out to third ended the threat.
